Creatine is naturally made in our bodies, it can be eaten in food and it can also be taken as a supplement. Creatine provides your body with energy for short bursts of energy via ATP.
Creatine is composed by three amino acids Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. The human liver combines these three amino acids and makes creatine. As a dietary supplement creatine has been successfully shown to provide not only muscle growth but also strength, energy and reduced recovery time. Also recent studies show that it also improves brain function and reduces mental fatigue.
The way Creatine works its very well known but to give you a short idea creatine increases the volume of the cell by drawing water into muscle cells, making them larger. This is why creatine is commonly associated with water retention, not to be confused with bloating; however some forms of creatine have that effect.
Creatine is sold in a variety of forms, including creatine monohydrate, creatine ethyl ester, creatine alpha keto gluterate, tri-creatine malate, creatine citrate, magnesium creatine chelate. Though all types of creatine are sold for the same purposes, there are differences between them, such as price, necessary dosage, effectiveness, utilization, and bioavailability.
Atomic Strength Nutrition has created the most advance form of creatine to not just promote muscle growth and fast recovery but to also reduce the bloating sensation without jeopardizing its main purpose.
Creatine Matrix is a blend of three different types of creatine each with its own benefits. By taking the synergistic power of research-proven dosages, Creatine Matrix™ gives you the widest range of benefits without any unwanted side effects.
Creatine Monohydrate – the most researched and proven form of creatine available and serves as an immediate source of ATP for the muscles
DiCreatine Malate – a compound formed by bonding creatine with malic acid. This form of creatine has been proven to have a very high rate of absorption as well as no water retention and much less risk of bloating and stomach discomfort. Stacking DiCreatine Malate with Creatine Magnapower has been proven to improve performance much more than one form alone.
Creatine Magnapower – by bonding creatine with magnesium, Creatine Magnapower increases the uptake and storage capacity giving you a higher rate of ATP conversion.
